Beginning of Path Two (2) to the Church of the Virgin Mary in Dokari and Kastelli

There are two ways to reach the ancient city. The approach from the south (the one shown here) starts north of Katalimatsa, at the point on the road from Chora to the monastery that is 200 meters from the intersection for the church of Saint John (Agios Ioannis) and Katalimatsa. The path ascends to the west, after 400 meters, it passes the church of the Virgin Mary at Dokari (Panagia sto Dokari), with its marble Roman sarcophagus. From the small church, an arduous 600-meter ascent to the north takes us to the ancient city in Kastelli (with approximately 130 meters’ altitude difference to the ancient city and 170 to the top in Kastelli). The second route, coming from the north, starts a few meters from the church of Saint (Agios) Mamas, northeast of the ancient city, on Path Two (2), which follows the ancient Sacred Way that connected the city of Kastelli with the temple of Apollo (on the site of the current monastery of the Life-Giving Spring, or Zoodochos Pigi).
